  1. Please Help Fast!! Restoring Old Documents Location V1709


    So I was trying to move my documents folder into my external hard drive so I could have mods for my sims games on the external. Unfortunately, I did it wrong (didn't create a folder for it to go into so everything go scattered around) and now I'm just trying to restore it back to its old location, but I keep getting different errors. *Sad The current one is the "system volume information" error. I have followed every tutorial I can find on how to gain access to that folder, but it continues to deny me access. Please help I just want to restore my documents to their old location *Sad(((

    :)

    The next troubleshooting step we suggest is to restore the default location of the folders. To do this, follow these steps:


    • Right-click the Start button.

    • Choose File Explorer.

    • Type shell:UsersFilesFolder in the address bar.

    • Right-click the Documents folder.

    • Click the Location tab.

    • Click Restore Default.

    • Click OK.



    Follow the same steps to restore the default location for your Pictures folder.



    Give these steps a shot and check if the folders are unlinked from OneDrive.
